Little Pedro's seem to pop out of nowhere several months ago. It's always great to find a new venue that is in the midst of a renaissance and thats what I loved about Little Pedro's. I only went there twice, but each time I went, I really enjoyed myself. Its a great small venue that gets you close to the performers. They have cheap beer and a huge stuffed bear above the bar. There's always ample parking around. It's what you want in a LA venue. They were booking great shows and using the blogosphere to help bring people there. Jax hosted several of her Indie Schmindie nights there and I was all set to host our first show there next week.
You might be wondering why I am writing this post in past tense. I have been in touch with the very friendly and hard working Scott at Infectious Publicity. Infectious does all the booking for Little Pedro's. Sadly, Scott told me that Little Pedro's has a new general manager who is taking the club in a different direction.
They are currently closed and remodeling. Our show with the Submarines has been cancelled. Word on the street is that they will focus more on an adult crowd with jazz and blues events. A Rolling Stones cover band has been booked for New Year's Eve.
I will keep you posted on any news I have.
